Exterior photovoltaic panels with 'simulate style'
Dutch start-up Solar Visuals and also the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) have actually created brand-new "resemble layout" exterior modules that reproduce the attributes of structure surface areas. Lenneke Slooff-Hoek, an elderly scientist for TNO, told pv publication that the panels can be made in any kind of dimension or shade at 13% effectiveness, adding that they have a partly transparent colored layer made from tiny dots.

Solar parks have much better biodiversity influence than intensive monoculture farming
A research study project in the Netherlands is seeking to evaluate the effect of large range PV jobs on soil quality and biodiversity. Principal scientist Wim Sinke, of Dutch proving ground TNO, claims properly designed and operated as well as kept solar parks could prove to have much better outcomes than monoculture farming.

Waves, wind & floating PV
Dutch proving ground TNO is establishing an examination center for floating PV plants in Oostvoornse, where it will certainly examine the effect of wind as well as waves on floating frameworks as well as module return. TNO Senior Project Manager Jan Kroon informed pv magazine that it will certainly analyze module damages and also the influence of waves on light absorption. It has actually currently discovered that the proportion in between wave-height and also wave-length is an essential consider inequality losses, while keeping in mind that optimizers as well as micro-inverters on panels can alleviate losses.
